Darkness Begins To Take Hold


#MeToo has changed the way the world see’s women’s dignity. It is more than women’s rights…it is individual dignity of anyone who is abused by those more powerful. In an article by David Weigel in the Washington Post (121017), the case has been made by three individual Senators that the President of the United States must resign because of the accusations of women who have said the the man in the White House has sexually abused them prior to his taking office.

Weigel writes, ‘Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and two of his Democratic colleagues have suggested that President Trump should consider resigning, after a run of sexual-harassment scandals has driven out some members of Congress.

Sen. Al Franken “felt it proper for him to resign,” Sanders said in an interview with NBC’sMeet the Press” Sunday morning (121017), referring to the Democrat from Minnesota. “Here you have a president who has been accused by many women of assault, who says on a tape that he assaulted women. He might want to think about doing the same.”

Sanders’s comment, which built on a tweet he sent last week, came after Democratic Sens. Jeff Merkley (Ore.) and Cory Booker (N.J.) suggested that the “#MeToo moment” should prompt another look at the women who accused Trump of sexual harassment during the 2016 presidential campaign.

“The president should resign because he certainly has a track record with more than 17 women of horrific conduct,” Merkley said last week in an interview for the weekday version of “Meet the Press.”’

Perhaps it won’t be Russia that brings down this President.

Perhaps it will be the women who have begun the #MeToo movement in this country.

After all, women make up 50.2% of the population of the United States. Seventy (70%) are of voting age.

Poll numbers continue to come in on the low side, and a recent survey conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute suggests that women are more apt to be less approving of the president.

When asked whether the President should be impeached, 47% of female respondents said yes, while only 32% of the men involved answered the question in affirmative terms.

In fact, NPR reports that “women are a big reason why his approval rating is so low, Gallup data show. Women approve of the President far less than they have approved of any other president at this point in his administration in at least the last 64 years, according to data collected since Dwight Eisenhower was in the White House.”

The Hatch Is Open

The once close friend of the Senior Senator of Massachusetts, the Senior Republican Senator last Winter mused out loud that he was considering carefully retirement. And he mentioned that a person of integrity would have to be available to take his place. Then in October he told friend he plans on retiring.

Then about a month later, in fact last month, the Senior Republican Senator blew up publicly admonishing Senator Sherrod Brown of Ohio, who stated that ‘With all due respect, I get sick and tired of the rich getting richer.’ Then Orrin Hatch blew back, ‘I come from the poor people, and I have been here working my whole stinkin’ career for people who don’t have a chance, and I really resent anybody that says I’m doing it for the rich. Give me a break. I think you guys overplay all the time, and it gets old. And frankly, you ought to quit it. What you said was not right. I come from the lower middle class, originally. We didn’t have anything. So don’t spew that stuff on me. I get a little tired of that crap. I like you very much personally’, Hatch said to Brown. ‘But this bullcrap that you guys throw out here really gets old after a while. And then to do it right at the end of this is just not right.’

Born one of nine children in Pittsburgh during the Depression, his father was a metal lather. Metal lathers work with metal to build and install framework for the inside and outside walls in building construction projects. They did not make much money but during the Depression, it was a job. And in that era, jobs were very difficult to come by. And the Senator is prone to say they didn’t have indoor plumbing. Fact check: many during that time, especially the vast majority of American’s who lived off the land did not have indoor plumbing.

Today Orrin Hatch is the President Pro Tempore of the United States Senate. And he has been named the Designated Survivor.

The other day, the Senator called the President one of the best Presidents he’s seen in office stating ‘He’s one of the best I’ve served under.’ Then he invited the President to come to Utah Monday.

Is the Senator, who is 83 years old and once ousted a three term Senator by asking ‘What do you call a Senator who has been in the United State Senate for 18 years? Home.’ is now in his zillionth term in Washington, seeking a reversal of his previous retirement thoughts? It is more than home. It is like home home. It is a comfortable home. It is assumed that it has indoor plumbing.

But why would he reconsider? Well, behind the scenes looms a massive shadow of a man who is being supported by nearly everyone in the State of Utah and the Mormon Church. The first Morman every nominated for Presidency of the United States, Mitt Romney. And Mr. Romney has the power.

In a poll held recently, here was the results:

Voters in the survey only chose Hatch over Wilson if they knew she’s a Democrat.

But shockingly, in a poll held in September, Wilson fared better after a pollster forgot to include party affiliation on the survey. She received 45% of that hypothetical vote, and Hatch got 34%, leaving 21% undecided.

There is no mistaking it…Romney wins by a much larger margin than would an older Hatch.

But let’s look to Monday and see if the trip to Utah is a pat on the back or a boost to run again.

Before Harvey


We are stranded in a sea of unrelenting sexual misconduct discovery. Day after day, industry after industry, men are being accused of inexcusable sexual misconduct. It is a game changer in American life. When looked back at it in history, years from now, this will be the decade of transparency, when America got clean and men were put on a plateau of shame for not being men, for being stupid, boorish and downright a-holes. Or, will it remain, swept under the rug of privileged protection, where women are no longer our daughters but playthings for the powerful?

And as everything in our lives today, it began before Harvey. There was the comedian who has been accused of sexual misconduct for years as he enthralled all of us with his humor behind a different mask. There’s the guy who now resides in the White House. Eight women accused him of sexual misconduct. And there were video and audio tapes to prove it. Here was a man so brazen as to first suggest it was only locker room banter but now he insists that it was not his voice on the tapes, while everyone in the world can hear for themselves it was himself trying to impress a ladder-climbing punk reporter with the last name of two of the past President’s of the United States. We, citizens of this country, elected a low excuse of a man, and changed the way we look at everything today, including among other things, lying, cheating, stealing, disrespecting, bullying, mocking and abusing. They are now looked upon as badges of bright thought…understanding…new Orwellian behavior of what a man show be like. Are these the qualities we want for our sons? Is this what we are raising, men filled with power and greed to do anything they want, any time they want to do it?

Make no mistake about it, when the men and women of America decided to fight back at the accused sexual abuser for President by voting him into the office via the Electoral College (he couldn’t win on the popular vote), it was a game changer in American behavior. Puke flowed out of the cabinets of the closets holding the truth. But many turned their heads because of Party.

These past weeks, women finally began to come out and talk about what men had done to them…men of perceived power, ignoring what the man in the White House stated by saying he could ‘Stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody’ and not ‘lose any voters’.

They care now.

When the women came out and told their story of Harvey, the mega producer and holder of the ‘production sofa of the year’ award, year after year, he hid in Arizona and disguised himself with glasses, a wig and a hat, while believing to be a person who was going through ‘sexual awareness rehab’. Like the famous comedian before him, he held power over the women he allegedly abused. And they didn’t like it. Thanks to Samantha Cooney, Time (112217), who listed a vast number of them, thus started the flow…first a trickle, now a full force coming out of the tap on a daily basis. (For the list, go to:http://ti.me/2jxWflc)

In all, so far, these are 64 men who have disgraced themselves, to the public, to their acquaintences, to their friends, to their families and to themselves.

We care now.

Men are supposed to be devoted standard barriers for good manners, proper ethics and decent souls. Euripides stated, ‘To a father growing old nothing is dearer than a daughter.’ Didn’t their fathers teach these men anything? Didn’t their mothers teach these men anything? Didn’t their peers stand up and tell them to knock it off? Didn’t the women who complained have a clear and transparent platform to tell their side of the story and not be ridiculed? Didn’t the public turn their heads and raise their voices in disgust? Didn’t men and women demand respect and say ‘No’ and not go to see their product anymore, nor buy their products anymore or vote for them?

Will this be a blip in America’s social moment when nothing is done or will it stand as a seismic time when it changed everything?

Where are the politicians who will stand up and say ‘No’…’No More’? Where are the politicians who will stand up to their patronage supporters and say ‘No’…’No More’? Where are the voters? Will they keep these people in office, if they don’t?

Let us see when they have a vote in Alabama for a new Senator of the United States next week.

Perhaps this is the time to let us see…set the record clear and straight.

Then we will be able to see those who have been raised by good mothers and fathers who set the right example.

Or will she continue to cry in the shadows of democracy.

305 Days And Still Horrific Dislike For The Man In The White House


It is Day #305 under this Presidency. And according to Gallup, the approval rating of the President is at 36%. an astounding 57% disapprove. Thus, 7% don’t have an opinion.

Of course this is not an ordinary Presidency. A number of his closest advisors, former and current, are under investigation for various reasons. All of the supposed mis-steps center around greed.

His Attorney General, which he has an on again, off again like dislike public relationship; his former Campaign Manager, Paul Manafort, is up to his neck in Russian entanglements and tax fraud; a guy named Papadopoulos who was a foreign policy advisor and he has already pleaded guilty with his involvement with the Russian issues; Rick Gates, a campaign advisor is tied up with Manafort, again on the Russian mess; former White House chief, Reince Priebus; Donald McGun; Hope Hicks, interim public relations director, Sean Spicer, former White House press secretary, James Burnham, McGun deputy, and Josh Raffel, along with chief Assistant Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law. Then there is former national security advisor, Michael Flynn and his son. How about Tom Price, Michael Dubke, Steve Bannon and Anthony Scaramucci?

Sweet Sixteen? Hardly. The White House has never seen so many in such a short period of time being investigated for wrong doing in the beginning of any Presidency.

Thus, disapproval. Or, complete lack of confidence.

What will the future bring?

Gallop will show us next month.

Gallop Drops The Hammer As New Low Is Found


Stunning!

In the latest Gallop Poll of Presidential Approval, covering the period of October 28-October 30, 2017, found a 34% approval rating. How low is this?

In the history of Gallop polling, the lowest over a period was Richard Nixon from January 1973 to August 1974 generated a 34.4% approval rating.

Yet historically, this low point of the present President isn’t the lowest.

President Truman holds the record for President Approval’s lowest point at 22% in February 1951 as the Korean War was hitting its lowest point as the Chinese and North Korean forces captured Seoul earlier on January 27th. This low point contributed to the ratification of the Twenty-second Amendment to the United States Constitution, limiting Presidents to two terms.

President Nixon had, at his lowest, had an approval rating of 24% July through August, 1974.

President W. Bush had, at his lowest had an approval rating of 25% in October 2008.

President Carter, at his lowest had an approval rating of 28% in June 1979.

President H.W. Bush had, at his lowest an approval rating of 29% in July 1992.

None of the other presidents since Gallop began presidential polls in 1936 were lower than the current President.

Only President Kennedy had at his lowest point an approval, a rating above 50%, as in September 1963, his lowest approval rating was 56%.
